Hania Aamir is on a roll!
After signing on to Parvaaz Hai Junoon, the young actor has also been roped in to play the leading lady of the Na Maloom Afraad sequel.
"I'll be playing the leading lady in it," says Hania.
Speaking to Images, Hania revealed that her character is a "girl who's been brought up abroad in South Africa" and is romantically involved with one of the main characters.
For Hania, this offer couldn't get any better. She says, "Ever since I saw Actor-In-Law I became a huge Nabeel Qureshi fan. It became a dream of mine to work with him. It's so crazy that the day after I saw that movie I was gushing to a friend about how I'd love to work with this director and then a week after that I was being asked to come for Na Maloom Afraad 2. I just couldn't believe it."
Hania admits that she was a little starstruck when she met Nabeel for the first time. "I immediately told him, 'Listen, I am a fan and I am starstuck right now. Don't talk to me like a normal person, I am such a fan."
About Na Maloom Afraad 2, Hania further reveals, "This film is going to be amazing. I wanted to something different from all these serials. Well, I want to try everything. Like [I'm not playing] some extra happy Jab Wet Met type girl or the ever sad always crying weak girl. It's a funny film, my character also has her funny moments.
She added, "The film isn't about me. I don't mind because I know that not everything can be about me nor should it be so."
Na Maloom Afraad 2 will also feature original cast members including Fahad Mustafa and Mohsin Abbas Haider. Urwa Hocane has also signed on to the flick.
Currently, Hania Aamir is busy with Parvaaz Hai Junoon, another film she's excited to be a part of.
"The cast is awesome. They are just young people... and Hamza. It's been a lot of fun working with them and the story is pretty cool. It's very patriotic," says Hania.
About her character in the film, she says, "My character is more of a happy shiny person, but then she's also serious about what she wants, she's a go-getter."
She's excited that the film has a women's empowerment angle."You'll see how this girl goes after what she wants and what she believes in. In the script you'll see a lot of comments bashing women in the whole 'larki ye nahi karsakti' (a girl can't do this) way. But then you see this woman's journey of how she's gone through everything and achieved what she wants, at least trying to get what she wants, despite wondering if she's fit for it."
How does Hania see her own achievements? Has her rise to stardom changed her as a person, we wonder.
"I feel like I need to be the same person I am. People love me for the person I am and there are people who see my work and want to find out about me but it's when they get to know me that they are eager to work with me. I don't want to be that demanding celebrity or a diva. It is hard though. When you aren't a diva, when you are your normal self, a human, people take you lightly. I have noticed that the stars who throw tantrums and are very harsh are the ones that have people swarming over them and they get what they want.This is a mindset that needs to change in our society. I don't want to have to change myself and become someone I am not, especially when it's such a negative thing and involves me treating someone badly. I am trying to be myself, and that is what needs to be respected."
Hania will also appear in Urdu1's Mujhay Jeene Do, a serial about child marriages.
